My Approach

My work brings a psychoanalytic perspective to the narrative, the situations and the biography you wish to explore providing an opportunity for memories, thoughts and feelings to be witnessed by another in a secure relationship. The psychoanalytic framework - particularly in the relational version I use - brings thought as well as feeling to understand the issues brought to this space.

About Me

I come from a dance and educational background - originally from the United States though I now live and work in Edinburgh and have done so for over 40 years. I trained as a psychoanalytical psychotherapist in Edinburgh in the late 90's and have been working i private practice ever since.

  • Individuals

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

As an older person myself, I am interested in the questions we ask at different stages of our lives including those towards the end - whatever we consider that to be. I see my role as offering that perspective and curiosity to whatever narrative you bring; in the belief that thinking with another can help to shoulder, understand, perhaps heal the effects of that experienced narrative.
As with many labels, I am interested in how this one joins with other life negating experiences (eg anxiety) to deaden our ability to find the aliveness we need to weather storms that beset us.
